I just wanted to give some of my input on the whole 2.0 thing-
(I'm not trying to offend Viper or the people working on the project- I hold Viper to a lot of respect)
I don't really think overhauling the map is the most ideal thing to do, for several reasons:
- You strip the nostalgia away from the old veterans, I loved the old prison for its simplicity yet diversity
- You give people something to insult, sure if you keep the old prison people might say "Wow lazy" but at
least you can say "this is home" "this prison has supported us for 3+ years", as opposed to having people
say "wow this map is so ____" "I can't stand this new prison" "I miss the old prison"
- People never really quit because of the map, most people quit because they got bored or peoples' friends left
As for the whole genre being "dead"-
Its true, anything will die at some point; it happens.
However I do think if Convicted takes the proper direction in terms of change, maybe it can
go back to being how it was in 2011-2013. I'm all for updating SOME parts of the prison,
but completely making a new prison doesn't seem necessary- I think all the effort should
be poured into improving game play/longevity and fixing the holes that killed Convicted slowly.
TL;DR- The old map wasn't what killed Convicted
But that's just my opinion.
